The Body Mass Index (BMI) shows the relationship between weight and height of a human body. It should be seen as a guide to assess how much an individual’s body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height.
When a person’s body stores too much fat and the body weight is above the normal weight range, the person is considered to be overweight. This is not only a cosmetic problem, but can also lead to severe health issues, like cardiovascular diseases or type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The following benchmarks can be used as guidelines:
The normal value of a BMI of adults lies somewhere between 19 and 24 kg/m2. A BMI of 25 kg/m2 or above is considered to be overweight, a BMI below 19 kg/m2 is considered to be underweight. A body mass index of 31 kg/m2 or above is considered as obesity and has to be treated.
For the BMI test please provide your weight (rounded in kg) and height (in cm without commas and periods). Amputations are being considered. This calculator also indicates your individual basal metabolic rate and your normal weight.
Kindly note: The calculator is only suitable for people over the age of 19. For children and adolescents different conditions apply. We do not take responsibility for the accuracy of the calculation.
